Honeywell recently announced that it will provide inventory management and maintenance for 331-200 Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) on US Airways’ fleet of Boeing B757 and B767 aircraft. The financial terms of the 10-year contract were undisclosed.
According to Mike Madsen, vice president of Airlines, Honeywell Aerospace, “US Airways will save money through Honeywell’s spares pools, and reduce costs by avoiding delays and administrative work.”
Honeywell’s Integrated Service Solution reduces airlines’ upfront capital investment and asset availability in conjunction with maintenance. Under the program, Honeywell will provide spares to US Airways to support critical dispatch needs. Additional equipment is held within Honeywell facilities to support the rapid exchange of removed aircraft equipment.
Honeywell's aftermarket service programs provide a comprehensive range of cost-effective maintenance and asset availability solutions to support airline operations throughout the life span of the aircraft.
